COVID-19 UPDATES- ALL IN-PERSON LEARNING CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Weekly Random COVID-19 Testing Program in “Yellow Zone” Schools
Keeping school buildings open depends upon awareness and immediate action on any COVID-19 concerns in our buildings. For schools that have been designated by the state as being in the “yellow zones,” that means the random testing program must be implemented weekly. If your school is located in the “yellow zone,” you will need to update your consent form through your New York City Schools Account (NYCSA) or by downloading the form here.
Opt into Blended Learning by November 15, 2020
Now that school buildings have re-opened and COVID-19 infection rates have stayed markedly low citywide and in our schools, we know many of you are considering having your child return to school for in-person learning. If you previously chose full-time remote learning for your child, now is your chance to opt into blended learning for the remainder of the school year! By November 15, please opt into blended learning by downloading the form here. Families who need additional assistance with the survey can call 311.
At this time, families will not be able to opt into blended learning after November 15.
Families that choose blended learning during this opt-in period will begin in-person during the weeks of November 30 or December 7. Your child’s school will communicate your child’s start date and in-person learning schedule with you directly.
Daily Health Screening
As always, the health and safety of our students, families, and school staff remain our top priority. We have spent months preparing for the safe reopening of our schools; we know they are like home for so many of us and provide the social-emotional support and learning our children need.
We all have a part to play in keeping our school communities safe. We are asking you to do your part by making sure your children have completed their health screenings (including temperature checks) before they enter school buildings. We encourage you to use our daily health screening tool each day that your child is scheduled to attend in-person learning. Please click the link below to access the daily health screening.
